Sans Touristes

It was so nice to see a beautiful palace with so few tourists!

Château de Fontainebleau

We took a road trip around France at the end of August and into the beginning of September. We started by going to the palace of Fontainebleau outside of Paris. It is quite spectacular on the inside and far less touristy than Versailles. I highly recommend it!

Moutarde Maille

You find many flavors of Maille mustard in the shops in Dijon which you would not find elsewhere and they let you try samples!

Brass Owl

Owl Mascot
One sees these brass owl markers everywhere. They are meant to show where to walk and stop for a self-guided walking tour of Dijon. Next time I think we will try this tour!

Dijon, France

In early August we took a short trip to Dijon, France. It was far more charming than I expected. This lovely town is not mentioned in many guide books, so is not teeming with tourists. This main square in front of the Ducal Palace had fountains that the kids loved to play in.
